The 1996 Atlanta Games may be the most influential Olympics as it relates to Nike Basketball. During that short time in the ATL, Nike’s premier athletes laced up in iconic styles that still hold boulder-level weight today.
Of the many, the Nike Air More Uptempo “Olympic” is arguably the most transcendent. Worn by Scottie Pippen and designed by Wilson Smith, this patriot rendering of the famed 1996 silhouette finally returns with Scottie’s Olympic number 8 next week, on July 20 via SNKRS.
